The export of Norwegian salmon continues to increase. The toal value for January reached NOK 1.8 billion, the highest for the month of January ever, and NOK 260 million higher than for the same month last year.
In 2009, Norwegian Seafood exports totalled NOK 44.7 billion and for the sixth year in a row sets a new seafood export record. Compared with 2008, exports are up by NOK 6 billion.
The export of salmon from Norway is so far this year 33 per cent higher than in the record year of 2009. The industry believes this trend will continue, and that 2010 will be a new record year for Norwegian salmon.
